Steven Young Trust Fund"Never give up on a dream"

Steven Young Trust Fund

In September of 1989, a group of Caledonia citizens raised funds for experimental medication for Steven Young, a 14 year old Caledonia boy suffering from cancer. A weekend event including a dance was organized. Unfortunately that weekend, Steven passed away. Steven’s wish before he died was that any money raised should be used to help others in situations such as his. Every year since, his wish continues to be fulfilled by a nine member board who receives and reviews requests for financial assistance.

The Steven Young Trust Fund is a charitable organization that raises money each year by holding their ever-popular Rubber Duck Race in the Grand River in conjunction with Caledonia’s Canada Day celebrations. Private donations are also welcomed throughout the year.
